    Sorry its been a while. I was waiting for the error scan, which sadly did not finish. After 70+ elapsed hours, it only reached about 650gB of 1000, and the speed was almost always at 0.1MB/sec, and seemed to slow down with time. The benchmarks did complete however. There are also now 5 weak sectors, up from 4 at the beginning. The first time I used a hard disk analyser, it reported 3, this was several weeks ago, so it does seem to be increasing.

    Follow this part to realllocate the sectors, so long as you don't run chkdsk properly the unstable sectors will remain unstable.
    You only ran a scan, either through Windows Explorer or by running chkdsk without any parameter, it is not enough to reallocate the bad sectors.
    Run chkdsk

    Use option TWO with parameter /r
